Back to Normal

garbage-cans

We began the new year

in an unusual way

blanketed with ice and snow

that was beautiful, disrupting

and treacherous.

So much new snow fell that

garbage collection was delayed

for a whole week.

Today, with the steady dripping of icicles

and the warm falling rain

we emerge.

The garbage trucks arrive and collect.

We  begin to get

back to normal

and  turn

to matters of the nation and world,

beautiful, disrupting

and

treacherous.
